Find the right
blood pressure medication
using your DNA.
Hypertension is the leading preventable cause of death in the world.
Geneticure's patented test uses a sample of your DNA to recommend a personalized treatment plan, just for you.
Using the DNA on a cheek swab, Geneticure recommends which hypertension medication(s) may give you the biggest drop in blood pressure:
Fewer office visits.
Your body is unique. Doctors don't know if a blood pressure medication will work until you try it. If it doesn't work, they might add or try another. This trial-and-error costs time and money. Some medications can even make your blood pressure go up.
Geneticure's test looks at 17 genotypes and 11 genes* to determine how your body responds to each medication. Your personalized report helps your doctor prescribe the right medication from the start.Read our research
What our patients say:
I had my hypertension under control, but my medication went off the market. Soon I was in the emergency room. I remember my systolic blood pressure was 210. The doctors worked together to come up with a cocktail of drugs that was like the medication I used to take, but it didn't seem to work. A coworker recommended the Geneticure test. It showed that the new medication was my best choice, which made me feel like I was on the right track. Now I have good blood pressure again.
I went to the ER for an unrelated issue. When I arrived my blood pressure was 181/96. I asked them to dose my Geneticure recommended therapy, which they did through an IV. My blood pressure dropped to 139/66 within 2 minutes.
It came on suddenly at work. My co-workers tried to use an automatic blood pressure cuff but it kept saying "ERROR." By the time the ambulance came my numbers were 240/160. Many medications, doctors, nurses, and days in the hospital later, I had more questions than answers. I took Geneticure's test. It recommended a medication we hadn't tried. My doctor prescribed it immediately, and it worked. Now when I take my blood pressure every afternoon it's usually 120/80.
I started with ACE inhibitors and it worked for a bit. When it stopped, my doctor increased the dose. It still didn't work consistently, so my doctor added a calcium channel blocker at a high dose, but that didn't work any better. My sister had a Geneticure report. I showed it to my doctor. He followed its recommendation and prescribed the same beta blocker as my sister. It started working right away. My sister and I believe in the work that you are doing and I love the way I feel!
What's in my report?
Different blood pressure treatments target different systems in your body. Your DNA can predict which system is most likely to respond to treatment. Your Geneticure report describes the responsiveness of 3 of your body's main organ systems:
Controls how hard and fast your heart beats
Controls the tightening of blood vessels
Controls the absorption of sodium and water in your kidneys
